Other factors included improved convenience and accessibility for service users, and a reduction in processing costs associated with reduced cash handling.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Home Office does not pay Post Office Ltd (POL) for providing either of the passport Check &amp; Send services. The handling charges by POL to passport customers applying under both the digital and paper Check &amp; Send services cover their costs of providing these services, and for the onward secure transmission of applications to Her Majesty’s Passport Office. This has been the case since the original service was introduced in 1996, and will continue to be the arrangement until the current Agreement ends on 31 August 2022.</p> more like this
